Flow Meters Indicator
The valve position indicator FLOWMETER is a combined unit with mounting surface for directional control valves NG 06 according to ISO 4401. In detail the module consists of a hydraulic manifold, a gear type volume counter and an indicator.
The Flowmeter position indication devise is designed to locally visualize as well as remotely indicate the position of hydraulically operated butterfly valves. The Flow-meter is a combined unit that consists by a directional valve and it´s control modules, together with the hydraulic gear driven components (a hydraulic manifold, a gear type volume counter and an indicator).
This option is particularly convenient when the valve is located in a submerged/non accessible place, or in hazardous areas, avoiding the preparation for the special cabling and the costs involved. In such way, the valve position is obtained by measuring the actual quantity of oil flowing to or from the valve actuator.
The flow-meter is intended to match the specific actuator displacement, therefore the indication is proportional to the displaced oil and thus to the punctual valve position.
